My name's Juwairiya but that's a 9-letter mouthful for most people so just "Ju" works too. I'm an 18-year-old Muslim-Pakistani girl and I'm currently living in Qatar!

A lot of things have fascinated me over my few years of living, including:

- morbid Ancient Greek myths
- sad kpop songs
- human anatomy and physiology
- thrilling TV shows/movies
big cities, loud cities, colorful cities
anime that blow me away

But the one thing that's always been a constant is books.

I started reading just to improve my English since I couldn't communicate with anyone when I came to Canada as a kid. But as soon as I learned the language, it was a slippery slope from there. I grew up to discover the YA genre and my only regret is that I didn't find it sooner!

About the Blog

Fictional Skylines was formed after 2+ years of reviewing on Goodreads, surfing countless blogs for hours and simply connecting to it all. It was formed with the intention to be predominantly about books but my love for anime/kpop/anything that gives me feels will always invade somehow, someway.

Let it be known that this blog is also not about formal reviews with "therefore"s or "I do declare"s. It's a place where I unapologetically use slang and express my heartfelt opinions, occasionally even in caps-lock or GIFs.

I will be brutally honest 999% of the time, even if it makes me feel like a total black sheep/ugly duckling when I harbor unpopular opinions. There will be much gushing and much raging. There are in-betweens and there are DNFs. But no matter what, I assure you that no authors or publishing companies will be burned to a crisp by any dragons in the making of these posts. I can't say the same for their books though. C'est la vie and all that jazz ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
